,Fintech events are increasingly becoming more frequent with the rise of fintech in Africa. Here, stakeholders, fintech enthusiasts and the general public meet to discuss topical issues in the industry, network, implement and foster collaboration.
The word fintech has gone beyond a buzzword today in the African market. It is continually shaping how we transact offline and offline, leading to its rise across the continent. Over the years, the African Fintech Industry has been a massive influx of funding. According to the Nigerian Startup Funding Project, Nigerian fintech startups have raised over $1 billion between 2018 and 2021.
It’s been interesting to see how the African Fintech Industry has continued to take great strides over the years, as it’s anticipating exponential growth and quick acceleration beyond the borders of Africa.
We are excited for the African fintech industry solidifying its ground in the global space and looking forward to a few events as the year gradually winds down.
